Celebrate !!

Friday, 27 December 2013

Heyy Friends,
Okay, this is my second post of the day and it may seem to you that I'm on a card making and posting spree :P lol. Actually my next few days are going to be super busy as we are shifting to a new home very soon and there's some serious packing to be done. So won't be getting time for a next few days to craft and just don't want to miss playing along a few challenges either. Okay, so without boring you with my story any further, let me show you probably my last card for the year 2013  ..;) -

The technique I used is 'Tone-on-tone' Stamping technique. First coloured the strips of card stock with different distress inks and stamped with a BG stamp on each strip using a corresponding distress ink. It's very easy to do, and I loved the results. :)
I was inspired by Marion Vagg's card I saw on pinterest. Do check out her fabulous card here


The roses are handmade and I learnt to make them from very talented Dr. Sonia's blog. She has some amazing flower and other tutorials explained very simply. I distressed the flower petals to give it that 'shaded' look.
The sentiment is hand written on a piece of vellum.

My dear hubby loved this card because it's so colourful and vibrant :). How do you like it? 

That's all from me now. Wishing you all a very happy and a prosperous New Year. :)

  10. Hi Jasleen ~ coming over from Darnell's blog to say "hi" - and how right she was when she described you as passionate about crafting! Your quill cards are so lovely, and your stamping - as shown here - absolutely fabulous! How wonderful that you've had an opportunity to re-connect with your creative side, creating delightful works of art to share with us and, especially, your daughter! She'll be stamping alongside you in no time (my niece is 3 and I showed her how to stamp when she was about 2 1/1 - amazing what she's able to do now!). Wishing you a most Happy New Year and a smooth move to your new home...how exciting! I'll be back to visit for sure!!

  11. Hello this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if
    blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

    I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding
    expertise so I wanted to get advice from someone with
    experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
